Why a Study Center in Richmond?
“For all the faithful, demonstrated Christianity there is in Richmond, there is little that supports that work theologically. The Richmond Center for Christian Study fills that gap by providing thoughtful teaching and discussion of both the great truths of the Christian faith and the challenges presented by the issues current in our society.
In addition, the Center is a unifying agent in the culture of Richmond, bringing together Christian and non-Christian, Church, parachurch and university, simple folk and more rigorous academics by the breadth of its programs. Few organizations can do this well, but the Richmond Center for Christian Study is positioned to provide a place where honest answers to honest questions can be found.”
